On a recent day trip to Sperryville and Culpeper, I stopped in to check out the tearoom, as all the tea rooms in Fredericksburg are closed. The owner greeted me with a free scone and some clotted cream to try. She gave me take home menus of their food and tea selections. I did not stay to eat as my husband does not kike tea rooms. Cannot imagine why. He thinks they are for women only. Anyway, my daughter and I LOVE tea rooms and ate at Miss Minervas at their other location some years back. It was delightful, delicious and we are going to drive back to Culpeper as soon as my recent surgery is completed, so we can enjoy the ambience and wonderful food. I am so looking forward to this road trip with my daughter. Thank u to the owner Miss Pat, for the wonderful scone she gave me, just for stopping in. We will see you soon, hopefully within 2 weeks. I recommend Miss Minervas to all who love Tea Rooms and their cuisine.

This is one of my favorite Tea-Rooms! The atmosphere is wonderful! The decor is splendid and adds to the relaxation experience. You will feel likeyou are having high tea in elegant style! There are many hats for you to fancy, teas and tea sundries are for sale. The scones and devonshire clotted cream is wonderful. I had the full three tier tea and it was a wonderful experience!

Always a lovely experience. I can get my husband to join me because it isn't over the top feminine. Food and service is always excellent. You can't come to Culpeper without stopping by Miss Minerva's. Our friends love to go and enjoy a good cup of tea and scones when they visit.

We had a wonderful visit to Miss Minerva's last Friday. We took the train down from the Washington, DC area, as a special outing on a day off from school, and it was completely worth the trip. The food, tea, and service were as good as in any tearoom I've encountered. Though our group featured six children, including a two-year-old, the lovely staff made us feel not only tolerated, but welcome and appreciated. The other patrons burst into applause as our daughters emerged from the back room dressed in fancy hats and jewelry! The current timing of Amtrak trains makes this a very easy outing from Washington for lunch and/or tea, with time to explore the rest of historic downtown Culpeper afterwards. We will definitely be back!

This is our second year in Culpeper, and our second year to take my granddaughter to Miss Minerva's for her birthday celebration. She turned 7 years old this year, and insisted we have tea for her birthday like we did last year. I think we have started a new family tradition! The service is beyond compare, and they make adults and children alike feel at home. The teas and food are also wonderful, and they have something for everyone. We have had the Tea for Three, the Wee Tea, and find them all to be delightful and satisfying. The tea selection is wonderful. The entire experience is fun and memorable.

Just returned from another fine tea at Miss Minerva's. A favorite girlfriend and I have been celebrating our birthdays here for years (even at the old location down the street). The variety of items are always delicious and we look forward to trying new selections. The tea is brewed to perfection and always a generous amount. My girlfriend even keeps a checklist on all the teas she has sampled over the years --- all great. A perfect tea room --- you won't be disappointed!

Miss Minerva's is certainly the friendliest and mist inviting tearoom we have visited. It was a long drive for us to Culpeper, but well worth the trip. The Afternoon Tea was delicious and and Tea for Three worked perfectly for us. Be sure to have the Tomato Roasted Red Pepper soup,
